The SAGES Educational Resources Committee has developed this patient information brochure on Laparoscopic Surgery for Severe Obesity to assist surgeons in preparing their patients for surgery. Given the variations in technique, SAGES has designed this patient handout to describe the most commonly performed techniques for treatment of severe obesity, including:

  • What is severe obesity?
  • Medical and surgical treatment options
  • How laparoscopic surgery is performed
  • Expected outcomes of the procedure
  • What can be expected after laparoscopic obesity surgery
